    I'm getting Screen on Time of about 6 hrs 30 min or so from 256 12gb variant received yesterday morning . Currently , I have set refresh rate at 60 Hz instead of 120hz to increase battery life.


    I was wondering ,what is the screen on time others are getting from their units ?

    SOT may vary user to user. You don't really need to change your refresh rate to 60Hz. The device, to save battery life, adapts the refresh rate to the app or the activity that you are doing. If you are using YouTube, the refresh rate will fall down to 60Hz, atleast this is what I have read.

    I've recently bought 8T and the battery runs out really quickly even though I don't use it much. Is there something we need to do to save power? Please help

    My usage is hardcore. Except games as PUBG is banned. I use it continuously even my work calls and VC's are done through my phone. Never faced any heating issue or charging issue. Maybe it depends on how frequently you guys charge. I normally use it till 25-30% battery left and put on charge till it's min 90%.

    Battery drain is crazy... Using for 3 days now... I didn't expect this especially since I hardly use my phone in office... I don't understand why is it so?
    Screen on time is so low. Especially since I only use it indoors. said:

    My wife has had the 8T for a week and the fatal battery, she has 34% left with 3:25 of the screen, Instagram is the one that consumes the most, 33% with 1:30 of use and 47 minutes in the background, I have reinstalled Instagram just in case ... But it has been installed for a week, the screen is at 60hz. Could it be a battery failure?

    I tried lot on battery draining issue and found that after 10 days use of mobile now battery draining is normal. I think due to cycles of charging battery is settled down now.

    Just do one thing, clear cache memory and app preferences. Also reset device to factory settings and notice still you are facing same issue or not.
